Team 95 - Rest Stop

Lonsumflight is his registered name but I call him Breyer. He is a double registered Quarter Horse/ Paint and his color is black. We came to develop our partnership 18 years ago when he was just 4 months old and we've been best friends ever since. 

My name, is Dee Morris. I grew up in the town of Grand Island, Nebraska so you could pretty much call me a city girl. After begging my folks for years, I got my first horse when I was 12. He was my first best friend and we went everywhere together. His name was Flash. We moved to the mountains of Estes Park, Colorado and that's where I really learned to ride. A year later we moved to Longmont, Colorado and I became experienced in 4-H and showmanship.

Now back in Nebraska for the past 25 yrs, I mostly just ride to ride. I love exploring in the canyons south and North of Gothenburg because it's a workout for both myself and my horse.  
My passion is riding and I'd like to make as many friends as I can who share the same passion. I've created a group page on Facebook so I can find people from all over who would like to share their experiences, photos and favorite places to ride their horses. 

This competition will be good for me to get back to riding more consistently. I've injured the nerves in my neck which make it hard to do much of anything and I haven't spent much time in the saddle over the past 2 yrs. I'm hoping to push myself to get out there and enjoy life again instead of staring at it though the window.
